Woohoo! Our first Clean & Cruise of 2023 was a huge success. We picked up over 100lbs of trash, so thank you to everyone who came out to Gas Works Park that Saturday. A special shout out to Urban Surf for stopping by and to the wonderful dogs that spent the afternoon with us. In addition, we had our Splash Into Spring social event at Jellyfish Brewing where we gathered surfers, scuba divers, standup paddlers, and kayakers alike to chat about favorite spots in the Seattle area. We hope you enjoyed that social and maybe learned some new beta. Can't wait to see you all at our upcoming May events!
Salmon Stories -
May Chapter Meeting
Please join us next Tuesday May 16th for Salmon Stories, our May Chapter Meeting, at Dirty Couch Brewing from 6:30pm to 8pm. We are stoked to have Cormac Toler-Scott from the Wetland Ecosystem team at the School of Aquatic and Fishery Sciences at UW as our guest speaker. This lab has been monitoring the marine ecosystem adjacent to the newly ecoengineered seattle seawall in elliot bay to understand its impacts on juvenile salmon and other fish/inverts. Come on out next Tuesday to learn more!

We can't wait for another Clean & Cruise for 2023! This time join us at Golden Gardens on Saturday May 20th starting at 11am. Look for our big blue Surfrider Foundation tent, and we will have trash bags/buckets, gloves, and pickers for you to use. If you want to join us and Surf Ballard for our social paddle, we ask for those paddlers to return to the tent at 12pm and start making your way to Surf Ballard as we will start our social paddle at 1pm across the street from Surf Ballard. As for those not paddling, we will be at Golden Gardens all the way until 2pm. Families, children, and dogs are all welcome and encouraged! We hope to see you there!
